Upkeep of the exchange is done in a decentralized fashion with any user being able to call the performUpkeep() function and execute it.

In order to incentivize upkeep being done, users calling performUpkeep receive 5% of the arbitrage profits that have been generated since the last call to performUpkeep (rate adjustable by the DAO). This incentivizes upkeep to be dependent on the activity of the exchange itself.

Gas usage for upkeep is measured at between 272k to 1.1 million gas - with the higher range resulting from the maximum number of pools on the exchange (100 pools hard limit).

In addition to the decentralized mechanism, Othernet Global PTE LTD will maintain redundant servers to run baseline levels of upkeep to ensure smooth exchange operation.
